HC Deb 06 March 1896 vol 38 c364

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether it is intended, in the new form of tender for meat contracts, to prevent the importation of frozen meat into a meat producing country like Ireland, if the native product can be had at or about a similar price?


The hon. Member was informed yesterday that the question of the supply of meat to the troops in Ireland is under the consideration of the Secretary of State, and the subject of purchasing from local instead of from outside sources forms of course an important part of the Inquiry.
